Work Party tomorrow (Monday, March 30, 3:00)

Hi Britannia Neighbours,
With any luck, we’ll have a work party tomorrow (Monday, March 30, 3:00) in the Napier Square Greenway. Please come if you can. We didn’t have a work party last Monday because it was miserable and raining. It’s quite likely to be raining again this Monday. So … WEATHER PERMITTING. 
If it’s nice at 3:00, let’s do it. If not, we’ll postpone for a week!

Work Party in the Greenway tomorrow (March 23), 3:00

Hi folks,

We'll have a work party in the Greenway tomorrow, weather permitting. 

Someone gave me a large viburnum shrub to plant in the garden around the new book exchange at Salsbury and Napier, but Christine also donated a fire bush to go in there, and the gardeners today agreed that the fire bush is more suitable for the location and they planted it. 

Both large shrubs will not fit, so I've got this lovely viburnum to find a home for. I'm thinking it could be the centrepiece of the berm in the southeast corner of the Greenway, if others agree. (It could also be suitable for one of the planters, but we don't have the compost yet, and the planters are not ready to receive plants.)
So… I will bring the viburnum down in my wheelbarrow and we can decide where it should go!

Here it is:

Hope the weather's dandy.
Come if you can. No need to RSVP. 
Bring your own tools (gloves, secateurs, kneeling pad, trowel, rake, broom, whatever…) and I'll bring garden-debris bags.

Work party in the Greenway, Monday, Mar 16, 3:00, weather permitting!

Hope you can make it. Bring your own tools if you have them.
If it's actually raining at 3:00, we'll postpone to next Monday.

Work Party Monday, 3:00!

Hello Britannia Neighbours,
Just to let you know that we will have a work party in the Greenway tomorrow (Monday, March 9), but the very first order of business will be for us to gather down in the area of the Britannia courtyard (with coffee and goodies) and have a look at the dozen or so large cement planters we have adopted and decide what plants to get for which planter. We will be trying to coordinate the planting of the new plants with the delivery of some soil for the Greenway so we can top-up the Greenway beds and the planters at the same time.
After that confab, we will have a short work party in the Greenway, so bring your usual gear and enthusiasm!
3:00 tomorrow!
See you then.

Work Party Tomorrow (Monday, March 2), 3:00!

Happy Sunshiny Days, Grandview Gardeners!
Yes, indeed! It will be our third work party of the season (weather permitting, but it is supposed to be nice). Bring your usual tools — secateurs, rake, kneeling pad, gardening gloves, etc. — and I'll bring some leaf bags. We'll probably just work for an hour or hour and a half.
And daylight savings starts already next Sat/Sun night!
